Huang Zi Tao, Jackson Yi, and Hu Bing Qing begin filming Yan Shi Fan Drama

Yan Shi Fan (艳势番) is the novel-to-drama adaptation of a novel written by Han Lu. The story takes place at the end of the Qing Dynasty and beginning of the Republic of China, following a bunch of youths in a time of turbulence, power struggles, and nation’s pride. Huang Zi Tao and Jackson Yi play dual lead roles; Huang Zi Tao plays Chong Li Ming, a leader to one of Eight Banners aka elite forces of the Qing military. But his other identity is leader to a special royal organization (assassination group), Yan Shi Fan, which protects the nation. Despite A Yi (Jackson Yi)’s humbling background, he encourages the boy to join. A Yi is described as beautiful, quiet, and cruel, with potentials to become a killing machine. A profound friendship develops among the men (yes there are a group of pretty boys!) as they go through difficulties and challenges, realizing their ideals and desire to protect their homeland, and joining the revolution.

The other boys include Yu Meng Long, and Wang Rui Chang. It’s a male-centric drama so Hu Bing Qing‘s screen time is limited.

    Wow the story looks interesting and I like the cast. Tao and Jackson in one drama along with Yu Menglong!
    Sad for Hu Bingqing but yeah she is the female Zhang Han. Her dramas are not able to be broadcast, so prob explains why she can’t get better roles.

    I am not sure Yu Meng Long in this drama. But, if that’s the case, then I am really interested about this drama.
